We saw Liza Minnelli there in 2015! It was great fun. We brought our own snacks. It was a beautiful night and I found it very enjoyable. Since it is so big, I would try to get tickets in the lower sections.

Just happened to drive by and decided to stop and have a look. Even luckier was that we got to listen to the the LA Philharmonic rehearse! A free concert!!! Would definitely recommend it! You can wander around and figure out where you want to sit for when you book your tickets for your next show!

What a great place to stop and take in the picuresque views of the Hollywood sign, The Bowl, Downtown LA , the coast and (on a clear day) Catalina Island.

Easy to get to, very little parking (we were lucky to beat the crowd one morning), and it was quite windy when we went (it happened to be both chilly and windy that day!). Great view to see the Hollywood Bowl, Los Angeles, and beyond.

We were in town exploring and stopped by the Hollywood Bowl to walk around the grounds. We walked up the hillside to get a terrific view of the stage area. Knowing so many famous concerts were held here (especially the Beatles) made it a fun discovery.

My first time to the Hollywood Bowl was quite a treat. We bussed in from Long Beach and it was easy peasy to jump off the bus and head into the venue. Grace Jones was the performer that night and OMG, if you ever get a chance to see her.. you must! She had quite an elaborate set & costume... More

Ok, I must admit that I am a bit bias with this review, as I produced a concert their May 1, 1971. It is a magnificent venue that is wonderful to just be there no matte who is performing. There is only one negative - The parking is an issue if you need to escape early because it is stacked... More

This is a great place to take out of towners. You get a wonderful view of the whole city. You can also see the Hollywood sign and the Griffith Park Observatory.

I can walk here from one of my homes. The biggest regret I have is that I hardly every go to the Bowl now I live that close. Wonderful music in the summer followed by massive fireworks. Another LA must experience.

A great place to take out of town visitors on a sunny day. Visitors can get a great view of the LA basin and Hollywood.
